What Are These Redirect Symbols for My Addon Domains?

  • Answered
In CPANEL most of my domains show Not Redirected but one shows : Redirect to /\..*$
What is that for.

The domain resolves to the correct address.

Is there a reason for the odd /\..*$ ?

Hello AIM_101, Thanks for your comment! The re-direct characters are called metacharacters. It's a little archaic to understand, but basically, it's saying that any file starting with a "." will trigger that re-direct (.htaccess is an example of a file that starts with a period - it means that the file is hidden). Check out this article I found during a Google search: Mod Rewriting Tutorials. The characters are used for pattern matching for whatever paths need to be re-directed. I hope this helps to clarify the issue. Please let us know if you require any further assistance. Regards, Arnel C.
